    Red face Question on prednisone

    For anyone who was on a high dose of prednisone; when did you start to see the "moon face" go away? I was on 60mg and now I am at 20mg and it has gone down a little. Just curious about anyone else experience.

    I think my moonface went down at about 15-20mg. At 10mg., it is gone.

    I've to go back a forth between 30-10, in the last 3 yrs. Even developed Cushing's syndrome
    From to long of use. I finally made to 10 and the moon face went away. My rheumy also told me at that
    Level so would the cushings. I'm back at20 again and have the moonface once more

    I started to lose the "buffalo hump" about 20 mg too.

    Hi I started, this time, at 80 down to 7.5 the moon face started to go when I got to 10 but the weight i gained is still here. I'm working on getting rid of it but it seems like a very slow process. Good luck!

    After a year I sort gave up and bought more larger size clothing and two years later I bought more and gave away my pre Wegs clothes. My weight sort of seems stable now for past two years but it is 18% higher than before the Wegs treatment..
